"Breakthrough Next-Generation Browser Netscape 6 - Powered by Open Source Gecko Browser Engine - to Be Released for Beta Testing in Next 25 Days."

"Netscape Communications, a subsidiary of America Online, today announced that Netscape Gecko -- its revolutionary smaller, faster, and more powerful browser engine technology -- will be used by technology industry leaders IBM, Intel, Liberate, NetObjects, Nokia, Red Hat, and Sun Microsystems. These companies will use the cross-platform Netscape Gecko browser engine to extend the convenience and power of the Web from the traditional desktop computer to a wide range of Internet devices such as set-top boxes and browsing appliances. Designed to power Internet devices across many platforms and devices, Gecko is a key component of the "AOL Anywhere" strategy."

"Netscape Gecko is revolutionary because it gives Web developers maximum power to create more powerful Web content and Web applications. It is open source, allowing individual developers to tailor it to their own use, and is designed to operate across multiple platforms, so that it can be deployed on the widest possible range of devices. In addition, Gecko is considerably smaller than the engines of traditional browsers."
